Circle programs provide a fun, creative space for youth that identify with female development to build confidence and supportive relationships. The evidence-based, Girls Circle curricula use activities such as discussion, drama, poetry, and collage to explore topics relevant to youth development in gender-specific ways. Through engaging with these topics in an emotionally safe setting, youth are empowered with tools to think critically and make decisions that are consistent with their values and interests.
All Circle Programs are for trans and cis gender girls, as well any youth that identifies with female development.
